A great, dependable car
Pros: Convertable top
Cons: non auto air/heatNo repairs in 4 years, 40,000 miles. The handling is sporty and smooth
Pros: The front seats
Cons: killer blind spots (more like acres)I love my PT crusier Convertible, it looks great and people on the street love it. The maintenacne is a killer and the quality of the parts is terrible. I've repaced items on this car with 50 -60k miles that I've never replaed on vehicles with 120K miles. Buy the extended bumper to bumper warranty with these babies. Everyone I know who owns one says the same thing about the mechanicals.
best vehicle ever
Pros: ability to know where it ends and begins
Cons: seat removalperfect car -- packer 'green', just great, mileage is super
Well worth the money
Pros: Removeable seats
Cons: gas mileageSo before I ended up buying this car I looked at Mazda 3, Pontiac Vive/Toyota Matrix, Rav4, and other small wagons/SUVs. At the end of the day, it was about price, and we got this for 2k less than it's value, with an 8 year/80,000 mile warranty in 2007. To this day, nothing has broken down. The good: clean and simple, we have power seat option, and sunroof. And living in NYC, it's just slightly bigger than a Mini, but with a lot more room inside. The best feature was the aux jack. The bad: new baby shows the limits of the space, gas mileage is on the low side, and power is low as well. The most comical flaw is that the windo controls in back are at 'ankle level' and in the middle, and we have occasionally had the back windows open when something has fallen off the seats and hit the controls accidentally. Overall it is a good car, and I would buy it again, but now it's time to get a little more space.
Pros: Overall excellent
Cons: gas mileagegood appearance,ride,utility
Cons: TiresLooking to buy another seabring conv.
Fun Car To Drive
Pros: Easy to drive and park
Cons: Gas mileageGreat fun car to drive. Comfortable, easy to park. Lousy gas mileage for a little four cylinder light car. 15 to 16 MPG in city about 19 to 20 on highway. Someone should be able to improve the gas mileage. Seat belt retractor broke after 11,000 miles. Not covered under warranty.
